A prospective applicant/licensee must submit a completed licensing application to demonstrate its financial, technical, and manufacturing capabilities to make, use and sell the above technologies. Licensing applications and other forms may be requested via email to Samantha.email@example.com.
To the extent not included in the application for license, a prospective licensee must also submit a description of:
Any licenses granted by DOE will be royalty bearing and will comply with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. Section 209(c) of title 35 of the United States Code gives DOE authority to grant exclusive or partially exclusive licenses in Department-owned inventions where a determination is made, among other things, that the desired practical application of the invention has not been achieved, or is not likely to be achieved expeditiously, under a nonexclusive license. DOE also requires that licensees agree that for use and sale in the United States any products embodying the licensed invention or produced through the use of the licensed invention will be manufactured substantially in the United States. The statute and implementing regulations (37 CFR 404) require that the necessary determinations be made after public notice and opportunity for filing written comments and objections.
